Blue Star Memorial Marker

The Luther Burbank District (this includes garden clubs of Sonoma, Napa and Marin Counties) is a member of California Garden Clubs, Inc., which is part of National Garden Clubs. Cathy Biggins, director of Luther Burbank District thought there should be a special marker at the Santa Rosa Vet’s Building. The marker is placed within a garden that a club or district designs and
plants. The dedication is a military ceremony with all the bells and whistles of the military. There was a Posting of Colors, which is a flag from each of the different branches (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard), and the American flag. Then there are some brief speeches from various people, followed by the acceptance of the markers.  "Taps" are played, then the Colors are retired.
